About Town: Art on the Greenway

Tuesday, August 11th, 2015

On a beautiful Spring, Summer or Fall day we consider ourselves quite fortunate to have the Rose Kennedy Greenway just steps away from our office.  The result of Boston’s infamous “Big Dig” and more than a decade of planning and construction, the Greenway is a mile and a half of contemporary parks in the heart of Boston that connect people in the city with beauty and fun.  Besides the plethora of parks and variety of food trucks, one of our favorite things about the Greenway is the abundance of art.  From sculptures to murals the innovative and contemporary exhibits are constantly changing and always a treat to take in.  Best of all, they are free!

One of our favorite instillation’s is the monumental sculpture hovering hundreds of feet above (you read that right) the Greenway.  ”As If It Were Already Here” from internationally renowned local artist, Janet Echelman, is a must see in our opinion.  The soft, billowing sculpture is designed to respond to the forces of nature – wind, water and light.  The piece is mesmerizing during the day but when lit at night creates a particularly powerful impact.  Although the exhibit is temporary, you have till early October to sit beneath the knotted fiber sculpture and admire it’s whimsy!

This past June, the Greenway unveiled their newest public installation in the Chinatown section of the park.  Located just around the corner from our office we love seeing these cute, paper sheep on our way to and from the train.  Did you know 2015 is the Year of the Sheep?  ”Wandering Sheep” is the first in a series of animal exhibits based on the Chinese zodiac and in 2016 the exhibit will feature monkeys!  The new art in the Southern area of the park is a great way to connect this sometimes forgotten end to the rest of the Greenway.

Last, but certainly not least, is the 70 x 76 foot Shinique Smith mural in Dewey Square.  Installed in September 2014, “Seven Moon Junction” will be on display through August 2015 – so catch it before it’s gone!  Inspired by the intersection where the mural resides, the merging of people and the joining of art and life, Smith’s mural is centered by a constellation of fabrics patterned with bursting fireworks and flowers.  We love grabbing a bite to eat at a nearby food truck and basking in the sun beneath this larger than life piece, but can’t wait to see the what’s on deck for September!

Whether it’s a long walk down the Greenway on a perfect Saturday or a 10 minute break from the office we urge you to catch these unique exhibitions before they are gone and while the sun is still shining.  As much as we hate do admit it, we’ll be buried in snow and huddled indoors before we know it!

Our Day on Instagram – The CE Summer Outing

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

We spend all summer planning your summer outings, so it seems only fair that we get one day to forget about work and celebrate the season!  Last month, Corinthian Events took to the streets and explored some of our favorite parts of Boston before enjoying a delicious dinner at Sweet Cheeks.  From donuts and champagne on the way to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum to a segway tour of Boston’s waterfront (with only one minor accident!), we basked in the 90 degree weather and learned bits of trivia (courtesy of our in house historian, Jill) about our beloved city.  Of course, we took to Instagram to document our fantastic day and share our fun.  Here’s our day on Instagram!

About Town: Row 34

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

Corinthian Events Boston

Summer is fast approaching, and what better way to celebrate the season than by heading to Fort Point for some unique brews and outstanding bivalves!  Earlier this year the team behind Island Creek Oyster Bar and Eastern Standard opened Row 34, a “working man’s oyster bar”.  Although you won’t necessarily find the bar full with blue collar types, the restaurant does offer a great atmosphere and even better seafood.  Similar to ICOB, the decor features small elements that pay homage to the Island Creek Oyster farm in Duxbury.  The combination of steel, vintage subway tiles, exposed brick and reclaimed wood creates the perfect industrial-chic ambiance!

While the furnishings are striking, the real star here is the menu.  Row 34’s namesake bivalve, an exclusive variety created by Island Creek, and the other East Coast oysters make for an excellent starting point.  The restaurant’s version of an oyster slider is perfectly fresh and light, with a lettuce cup replacing the usual brioche roll and pickled vegetables adding just the right amount of tang.   From clam shack classics to refined entrees, Row 34 has something for everyone.  Wash it all down with one of their extraordinary craft beers, and you’re sure to have a meal to remember!
